Scientists at the National research nuclear University «MEPhI», together with colleagues from France and Greece have proposed a simple method of controlled tension nanotubes and other tiny objects, which is able to reduce the cost of production of nanoelectronics. The results were published in the prestigious British journal «Nanotechnology».

According to him, when heated, these ions turn into gas molecules and the substrate surface is inflated, the gas bubble that deforms the nanotube. By changing the temperature, you can control the bubble size and, therefore, deformation of nanostructures.

«Our technique is applicable to a wide class of nanostructures, optional carbon – the majority of low-dimensional systems change their electronic properties under the action of tension,» explained the associate Professor of the Institute of nanotechnology in electronics, spintronics and Photonics national research nuclear University MEPhI Mikhail Maslov.

According to national research nuclear University MEPhI, the proposed method of deformation of such systems will reduce the cost of production of many basic elements of nanoelectronic circuits.

Now, the authors verify the effectiveness of the hydrogen bubbles on other materials (graphene flakes and carbon grains) and plan to prepare a patent.
